Tunisia: Hilton returns with Hichem Driss in Monastir

The Hilton hotel chain on Wednesday announced its debut in Tunisia with the opening of the highly anticipated Hilton Skanes Monastir Beach Resort, the former Skanes El Hana of Hichem Driss, who took over from Raouf Mhenni in December 2014.

Jan van der Putten, vice president, operations, Africa and Indian Ocean, Hilton said: ” by growing our portfolio of wonderful resort hotels across the African continent, we are providing new holiday choices for travelers in outstanding destinations like Tunisia, as well as creating career opportunities for residents in the travel and tourism industry.”

Hilton is a leading global hospitality company with a portfolio of 19 world-class brands comprising more than 7,200 properties and more than 1.1 million rooms in 122 countries and territories. In its more than 100-year history, Hilton has welcomed more than 3 billion guests, earned a top ranking on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list and been recognized as a global leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for six consecutive years.

Hilton, which mentions more than one presence in Tunisia in its latest publication, had already signed a so-called “historic” agreement with Samir Jaieb’s Tunisian Alliance Group in 2019.

This agreement concerned the brand’s return to Tunisia, in particular the Le Palace hotel, which was taken over by the Tunisian state from Belhassen Trabelsi.

That project hasn’t come to fruition yet, and the Hilton is in Monastir with Hichem Driss, who, let’s not forget, took over the former Tunis Hilton and rebranded it as the “Sheraton Tunis”.
